An expert in treating digestive disorders, Rihui’s approach is founded on spleen and stomach theory and practice handed down through his teacher’s lineage. He is also skilled in the Zang-fu differentiation system of diagnosis. Acupuncture and herbal medicine are Rihui’s primary forms of treatment. “I believe Chinese medicine works better than conventional medicine,” says Rihui. “I love the peace and harmony governing the ancient art of classical Chinese medicine.”

Rihui attended Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in Chengdu, China, where he earned both a Bachelor of Medicine and Master of Medicine (Internal Medicine of Traditional Chinese Medicine) degree. Before coming to Portland, Rihui practiced privately and taught at the University of TCM’s International Training Program and Neijing Teaching and Researching Office. He also taught at the Canadian College for Chinese Studies and the International College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in British Columbia, Canada.

Over his career, Rihui has become an authority on the classic text, Neijing, known by several translated names including The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine—the seminal medical text of ancient China. As a writer, translator, editor, and public speaker, Rihui has published several articles in professional journals, contributed to books, and presented public lectures locally on the benefits of Chinese medicine for various conditions.

Along with his clinical work, Rihui is a professor at NCNM’s School of Classical Chinese Medicine. He has been teaching Internal Medicine, Clinical Case Presentation, Classical Case Studies, Classical Texts: Neijing, and Traditional Mentorship Tutorial along with other courses since 1996.

When not practicing or teaching, Rihui enjoys hiking and playing the ancient Chinese board game, Go.
